I made a purse cake for my DD birthday party. When I put the cake in the box the lid hit the handle and broke on of them. I have remade it of gumpaste so it will dry quicker. Is there anything I can do to speed up the drying. We are leaving in 2 hrs for the party.

would a hair dryer work?

Depending on the break, can you superglue the broken one? No one is going to eat the handle and I've read that superglue will work on gumpaste in a pinch. You could put a little flower or something over the spot after it was glued to disguise it.

Not sure of the time differences... so you may have already left icon_sad.gif BUT a tip for next time

If it is a flat handle.....

Get a piece of clear acetate sheeting - overhead projector sheet??

cut a piece the same width as your handle - use sugar glue to attach the two piece of your broken handle to, or simply make a new handle on this piece of acetate - it is on the underneath side and will be virtually un-dectable, but will offer the support required without chance of breaking icon_biggrin.gif

If it is a round handle - cover a piece of aquarium hose in fondant and it does the same trick!! can be put on cake fresh and no need to wait for it to dry
